We're honored to receive the 2019 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award.

The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

Fairway Makes Commitment to Student Literacy  –  Jeremy S

The students at Weatherly Elementary received a "treat" this Halloween season as Fairway Subaru donated five boxes of books to the elementary school located in Carbon County. The donated books, primarily focusing on the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math have made a wonderful addition to classroom libraries! The students and their families are very thankful for additional resources to help students connect with classroom material! Thanks Fairway Subaru!

Gabi has been at the Humane Society of NWGA (Northwest Georgia) for seven years. If you asked the volunteers to pick their favorite animal at the shelter, Gabi would win hands down. She does not do well with dogs or cats so must be the only animal in an adult only family. She loves people and will bond very quickly to you. Gabi would make someone a great companion. She is waiting patiently for her forever home.

These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Fairway Subaru.

Fairway Subaru Grants 3 Magical Wishes!  –  Maggie O

This year, as the 2019 Share the Love Hometown Charity partner, Make-A-Wish Greater PA & WV received an all time high gift of $12,817.00 in support of 3 life affirming wishes for children from NEPA. We are so grateful to Fairway Subaru for this incredible continued support of our wish granting program. Our amazing wish kids are the reason we do the work that we do. We strive to provide these children a much-needed respite from their illness and offer them hope and strength along the way. Ten-year-old Joseph, from Hazleton is one of these brave kids. Joey is happy boy who loves animals, listening to music and blowing bubbles. Although Joey is non-verbal, he communicates with his family and friends by nodding his head, lifting his legs and flashing his wonderful smile. When considering his one-true-wish, his family shared Joey smiles whenever bicycles are mentioned. He once test drove a specially-designed bike at school and took to it like a natural. This feeling of accomplishment and determination was enough for Joey to wish for his very own adaptive bike. Joey loves the feeling of being active and this new bike was the perfect way for him do just that. His bike has given him a newfound sense of freedom and happiness. Having the ability to get exercise and simultaneously putting a smile on his face is more than enough to see that Joey’s wish was a dream come true. The “force” is strong in twelve-year-old Michael from Drums. Mike doesn’t let the challenges of a genetic disorder stop him from developing his strong Jedi powers. In addition to his love of all things Star Wars, Mike likes playing basketball with his friends, eating pizza and reading books like Harry Potter. When our volunteers first met Mike, he had already planned his perfect wish, a trip Walt Disney World® for a magical Star Wars adventure! Upon arrival, Mike and his family arrived at Give Kids the World Village, a spacious resort designed just for sick kids and their families. Mike was excited to get his first day started, making his way all the theme parks where he was free to go wherever he desired. Thanks to his Make-A-Wish t-shirt and button, he enjoyed extra privileges, such as access to different lines for rides and the chance to spend time with his favorite characters like Darth Vader and Chewbacca. While at Universal Studios Harry Potter World Mike couldn’t contain his excitement. His love for all his favorite magical characters is why this trip was so important to him. Mike’s mom couldn’t help but notice the strength and bravery in all of Mike’s favorite characters, and how he had all those same qualities in him too. Though she may be little, two-and-a-half-year-old Temprince, from Nescopeck has a big heart and personality. Despite her recent cancer diagnosis, her family maintains a joyful spirit and looks forward to the day they can celebrate a conclusion of her treatments. Our wish volunteers are currently waving their magic wand sand spreading some pixie dust to help this little princess choose her one true wish. But what we know for certain is this once-in-a-lifetime experience will bring this little girl and her family the heartfelt joy that they deserve. We look forward to sharing magical details of her wish soon. Until then, we want to thank you once again for choosing to support our brave kids. On behalf of Joey, Michael and Temprince, thank you for making wishes come true!


LLS & Fairway Subaru team up to Love to Care!  –  Jenn P

Fairway Subaru Makes Local Wishes Come True!  –  Maggie O

The regional office of Make-A-Wish Greater PA & WV is honored to be chosen as the Fairway Subaru Hometown Charity partner. In 2018, we received an incredible donation of $9,627.90 in support of local wishes. The children we serve, children whose childhoods have been interrupted by critical illnesses, spark such determination in us as we work to provide them with a wish experience that brings them lifelong happy memories. One such child is, twelve-year-old Jordan, from Hazle Township. At any time you might find this wish kid munching on pizza, playing with toy cars and watching movies with his brother, Jayden. What brings the biggest smile to his face is the time he spends watching characters like Mickey Mouse and SpongeBob SquarePants. Singing and dancing along never fails to put him in a jubilant mood. Jordan’s family told volunteers he imagines visiting the homes of Mickey and SpongeBob and perhaps even meeting the two. With that in mind, a trip to the Florida theme parkes was the perfect fit. Soon after, Jordan and his family embarked on their journey to Florida. Strapped into his seat on the airplane, Nicholas took in the scenes of the wild blue sky through his window. Upon arrival, Jordan and his family stayed at Give Kids the World, a special place for children like himself. The Village is filled with imaginative structures – giant mushrooms, oversized bananas, zoo animals and trains. There is an ice cream palace and gingerbread restaurant serving up many of his favorite treats. He had not even entered the Disney theme parks and already it felt like paradise.Jordan had two very special events during his trip. First, his visit to Chef Mickey’s restaurant, located in Disney’s Contemporary Resort, had all the breakfast treats a kid could want, including waffles in the shape of the house of the mouse himself. This was no ordinary meal, however. As he sat down at his table, Jordan noticed Mickey entering through a side door. He could barely contain his excitement as his favorite character walked over to give him a hug and take photos. Every day of the trip was something new and exciting. Jordan and his family will always remember what a wonderful time they had together on their wish trip. We thank the team at Fairway Subura and their wonderful customers for making what we do possible!

VALOR Backpack drive.  –  Jeffrey S

I had attended a stand down event in East Stroudsburg, Pa. A stand down is the term used for when VALOR goes to a community on the same day every month and sets up clothing, blankets, coats, sleeping bags, food and toiletries for the homeless in the area. At the Nov 13 stand down we had 48 homeless adults go through the donations and pick out items that they needed. But for the first time in 2 years, the stand down had 27 children pass through the event. I was talking with Amy Bamford, and we both were taken back by the amount of children that came. Amy was not prepared to give clothing and supplies to that amount of children. While talking with her, Amy said that she wished there was something that could be done just for the children. We decided to do a backpack drive. The 104 donated backpacks have a toy and a candy bar inside. The backpack also serves as a place for these children to keep their things in. I have passed out these backpacks to children, their faces are faces of sadness. When they get their backpack their eyes light up, smiles replace frowns and they are happy at that moment. The parents are very thankful to us for this effort and they make that known to me every single time.

Make A Wish Greater Pennsylvania & West Virginia  –  Dan C

Fairway Subaru in Hazleton is looking to make a wish come true for another child in 2015. Last year it donated more than $5,000 to the Make a Wish Foundation of Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The funds went to send a terminally ill child and her family to the Give Kids the World Village, an Orlando, FL resort that caters to the wish children and their families. During their stay they had unlimited amounts of ice cream and got to play on a life-sized game of Candyland. Eight year old Lucy and her family also received VIP passes and treatment to all of the Disney parks, Sea World and Universal Studios. Those at Fairway Subaru feel privileged to help give Lucy and her family the opportunity to have her fondest dreams come true. With this year's Share the Love donation, Fairway hopes to once more make a dream come true for another child in the Hazleton area.
